This year's event is taking place atGrand Central
in downtown Miami. Tickets are already on sale: $35 for general admission, $65 for VIP. There is one other way to get in -- through our ticket giveaway!
We are giving out four prize packages. Three packages are for two general admission tickets to Iron Fork. Want 'em? Go to Short Order's Facebook page and click the "Like" button. We'll be giving the tickets out at random until October 15.
But for one lucky person, we are giving out a VIP package that includes two VIP tickets to the event plus two bags filled with goodies. However, this one's going to be a little tougher to win.
To enter, you must submit your favorite original recipe to our Iron Fork Facebook page. Make it appetizing: submit photos, the exact recipe, and maybe what makes this dish so special -- anything to convince us you deserve to win. All you have to do is post it on our wall. The winner will be chosen by the Short Order bloggers. In addition to the awesome prize pack, the winning recipe will be featured right here on the blog, and we'll come over and cook with you to get awesome images to go with the blog post and try out the meal in person. Deadline to enter is October 15.
